A body was found in the search for a 28-year-old cook who had been missing since Tuesday.
Suchhem Gurung disappeared from his home in Overdown Road, Tilehurst, near Reading and there were concerns for his wellbeing.
A volunteer search team had been called in to try to find Suchhem, who was wearing a chef’s white top on his most recent visit, but the search for him was called off when a body was discovered.
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said today: “A body has been found during a search for a missing man from Reading.
“Suchhem Gurung, 28 years old, was last seen on Tuesday. A body believed to be Suchhem was found after searches by Thames Valley Police and Berkshire Lowland Search and Rescue.
“His death is not being treated as suspicious and a file is being prepared for the Berkshire Medical Examiner.”
Superintendent Zahid Aziz of Newbury Police Station said: “Unfortunately following searches we have found the body of a man we believe to be Suchhem.
“His family has been informed and is being offered support.
“Thank you to Berkshire Lowland Search and Rescue who helped with the search and to the public who shared our appeal.”
A search was carried out by Thames Valley Police and Berkshire Lowland Search and Rescue and a body was found last night June 8.
